SANDS OF IWO JIMA, 1949.

John Strykers wife leaves him and takes his son. Leaving him a bitter man. He projects his misery on to the soldiers under his command. The new recruits have a hard time living with his tough drills and even tougher skin. Is he just a tough Marine Sergeant, or a man who’s been pushed over the edge?

There are staining around the edges with some paper missing at the bottom left corner, the bottom fold line, and at each corner of the middle fold line.
